Mobile learning, context aware, hoarding.


The advances in wireless technology and handheld devices tend to mobilize the learning process. With these advances a new learning model called Mobile Learning (ML) has arised. The Context Aware Mobile Learning (CAML) aims to support learners and teachers activities while moving. CAML system has to be sensitive to the context that characterizes the interactions between humans, applications and surrounding environment. This paper discusses the technical issues of CAML. The available technology, including the mobile devices, wireless communication, and applications, is explained. The context of different systems is given. Some pilot projects are demonstrated. Issues such as evaluation, future factors as well as future challenges are discussed. At the end the conclusion is given.
